The Belt Buckle City

This article about the Tech Town business incubator brings us to our favorite new fact about Detroit. Did you know it is the buckle of the Rust Belt??? (Coastal readers: that would be nickname for the region of post-industrial production cities along the midwest to northeast) In this, the season of holiday indulging, we'd like to point out that belt buckles are more important than ever. Do you want to see fat Wisconsin lose it's pants? Want to see pale Pittsburgh shanked in public? Hell no. So you are welcome, America, for our efforts to keep the pants on in the season of flabby winter flesh. [miller-mccune]
